John Martin's Letterbook

Typical of many letterbooks from the period, John Martin’s book holds transcriptions of his professional and personal correspondence. Two of the last entries in the unfinished volume are touchingly devoted to the memory of his beloved wife, Anne: “A copy of the first letter I received from my dear wife, wrote a month, or more, before we were married” and “A copy of the last letter I received from my most dear wife, wrote about a Month before she died.”

John Martin. Letter book. Manuscript, ca. 1650-1663
